an issue. joining us this morning is. can you help us put a reason why this happened. >> asking why, to resell and coming up with answers is really a normal part. asking why, -- terisa. it allows us to regain some sense of control and hope we can prevent these tragedies in the future problem with the school shootings is that we always ask the wrong the questions. and we get to the wrong answers. and this morning, the answer is always guns and gun control. . >> the only thing that we can understand. >> we always come up with the wrong answers. the reason these keep occurring is because we felt u.s. the
8:48am
most important question is that why is that men and boys killed with guns. >> we were talking it is not girls. we do not hear about teenage girls join this why is it and what are we doing wrong. >> it does not happen. the truth is that most men are not violent in this country however, with nine out of time violent crimes are committed by men. every school shooting that has occurred fiord a governmen-it wa cover it was eight-one in 10 boys carries a gun to school one of 10. that is nine times the number of girls >> what are we doing wrong? >> we're not asking that why are girls and to not carry guns. why do for is not have access to guns? we do not answ ask those questions because
8:49am
we just take for granted that boys and men to use guns. >> you have devoted your life to solve a apostle word look more into the psyche of men and boys. we're also talking about the socialization. and how we are raising the voice. what are we doing wrong? >> that is when we ask the question correctly. then we can come up with some pretty good explanations. part of it is socialization and the other is mental health problems that are on treated. we talked a little bit more about mental health which is great but it is not gendered. girls and women are depressed. they have problems to but they do not go around shooting people so why what is the difference? >> part of it is that man's mental health problems are not being treated.
8:50am
>> undiagnosed? >> we need to look get these, uniquely and understand what is unique about them. we do know that the shooter committed suicide there is a strong link between suicide and depression. it is likely that he was depressed for at least not adequately treated. that is true for most men and boys in this country. they are bless less likely -- to get treatment. >> we need to recognize that these are in pain and they need help and they're not getting the help that they need. our boys are crying out for help. it is not just mental health providers. and we have our own set of issues because we also crew of in the same society where there is a myth. or they cannot get a -- that boy is
8:51am
to not get depressed. and we start to realize that men and boys are in pain parents the anchor in as prone to young boy sometimes it is actually learned to ignore and suppress. and then the something horribly terrible happens like this. >> you mentioned the socialization how we teach men and boys. a lot is through the media that they consume. movies, television, video games. >> my brother is going to say that something against my statement that i do not like video games. >> they teach employees of
8:52am
violence and they teach violence is not only acceptable but it is also effective. >> if the suns a very important message that police can get away with violence and that is what we see. girls do not but boys do. and is an effective way to get what they want. so, we really need to rethink how we are teaching boys to be boys. the bottom line is that and the answer to gun violence needs to begin with a question of gender. >> i'm sure that we could talk very long time of office. and i want to turn our viewers to the website the websitewww.themens doc.com thank-you. we are
